It's been 7 hours and 13 days since U took ur love away
Oh...
I go out every night and sleep all day since U took ur love away
Oh...
And since U've been gone I can do whatever I want
I can see whomever I choose
Oh...
I can eat my dinner n a fancy restaurant
But nothin', I said nothin' can take away these blues
Cuz nothing compares, no, nothing compares 2 U
Nothing, nothing

It's been so lonely without U here
I'm like a bird without a song
Oh...
Nothin' can stop these lonely tears from fallin'
Tell me, baby, where did I go wrong?
I can put my arms around every girl I see
But they'd only remind me of U
Oh...
Went 2 the doctor, guess what he told me, guess what he told me?
He said, "Boy, U better try 2 have fun no matter what U do"
But he's a fool
Cuz nothing compares, no, nothing compares 2 U
Nothing, nothing

All the flowers that U planted, mama, n the backyard
All died when U went away
Oh...
I know that livin' with me, baby, was sometimes hard
But I'm willing 2 give it another try
Cuz nothing compares, no, nothing compares 2 U
Ooh
I said nothing compares, no no, nothing compares 2 U
